Shortly after I came out to British Columbia in early 2006 I had a case of severely high blood pressure. It wouldn't have been fair to an employer for me to work for them until I got my health situation sorted out. I was on medications to lower the blood pressure and it took until early 2007 to find the cause. I finally went to a naturopath who found that a microscopic parasite was the cause for all this.

While getting my health in order, I took up blogging to share my photography. This way I wasn't wasting time and others got to enjoy the photos, not just me and those close to me.

In May of this year I had a mini-stroke cause again by severely high blood pressure. I may end up gong to the naturopath again since the specialist and other MDs can't seem to find the cause. This has only been a problem out here. Before that in Ontario, the blood pressure was only marginally high, not severely high like in BC.

Knowledge is good because being forewarned is forearmed!

All that said, enjoy this blog and all the photos I share with you.

Emilie and Marie II

The kittens, Emilie and Marie are growing strong each time I see photos of them that my son Wahid has shared with me.  The mother is a Persian flatnose cat, chocolate in colour.  We have no idea who the father was but there must be some Siamese in there to get the blue eyes which the mother (Lisa) does not have (she has reddish eyes).  The top photo has Marie on the left and Emilie on the right.  The bottom image is that of Marie.  I am still trying to determine why the hair is discoloured at the corner of Marie"s eyes.  Emilie has no problems in this respect.  Its just Marie!  Perhaps its an allergy?
